Playing Kelly Osbourne Apologizes After Remarks About Latinos: 'I Clean My Own F**king Toilets'

Kelly Osbourne is facing backlash after remarks she made about Latinos on Tuesday's The View.

While arguing against Donald Trump's remarks about Mexico and his views on immigration, the 30-year-old TV personality said, "If you kick all Latinos out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"

Outgoing View co-host Rosie Perez corrected Kelly, saying, "Latinos are not only the only people doing that."

Kelly clarified her statements, saying, "No, I didn't mean it like that! Come on! I would never mean it like that! I'm not part of this argument."

Rosie ended up apologizing to Kelly at the end of the show, saying, "Kelly Osbourne is on our side and I was sensitive."

However, Kelly's remarks didn't sit well with many on Twitter. Puerto Rican professional baseball player Enrique Hernandez sarcastically tweeted, "Heading to the stadium early so that I can clean the toilets in the clubhouse! Right? @KellyOsbourne."

Kelly released a statement to ET, which she also posted to Facebook, apologizing for her "poor choice of words." (WARNING: Explicit language.)

"I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions," she wrote. "In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT."

" I whole-heartedly f**ked up today," she continued. "I don’t want to bulls**t anyone with lame excuses. Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn’t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words."

"I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I’ve learned a very valuable lesson," Kelly concluded. "It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own f**king toilets."

After the show, Rosie again apologized to Kelly on Twitter, writing, "My apologies @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong-#Trump #Latinos. My bad. You're heart is so pure & righteous. I adore you. @TheView."

This is not the only time recently Kelly has found herself in hot water. In June, she was called out by fans for wearing a Rachel Dolezal wig, to mock the former NAACP leader who was outed by her parents for not being black, a move which many considered too soon, and insensitive.

Back in April, Kelly was critical of her former Fashion Police co-host Giuliana Rancic, after the controversy surrounding her off-color remarks about Zendaya.

"Giuliana is not often wrong. She really isn't, but it's been really, really heartbreaking to see her behavior that has transpired when she did get caught being wrong. That's what broke my heart," Kelly said.
